Contractions Or Gas

Traci76 - May 28

I'll be 28 weeks on Tuesday. Today while I was grocery shopping, towards the end, I started having bad cramps. They were low, and would last for about 30-45 seconds, and then afterwards my entire belly would feel kinda sore for a few seconds. It happened 3 times while I was in the store, finishing up. Then, when I was in the car, it happened 3 more times, 4 minutes apart. (so, that was 6 times within 30 minutes) I got home about 15 minutes later, and had to go to the bathroom. Sorry if TMI, but it wasn't diarrhea but it was a lot of bm. So, I finally chalked it up to gas, but have started to wonder if there was anything to be concerned about since I have read that loose bowel movements mean you're close to labor. Any thoughts?

I think it was probably both contractions (BH's) and gas pain. They often go hand in hand, at least in my experience. I don't think it's any indication of impending labor, though, as you're only 28 weeks. Good luck!

Thanks Tillie! I didn't know that about b/h going hand in hand with gas pains! That clears up the confusion for me!!
